When we stayed here in Feb 2016, we stayed in one of the older style suites. They were in the process of renovating the suite beside us, and the updates were beautiful. New tile work and major upgrades in the kitchen and bathrooms, and a freshen up of paint, fixtures and upholstery. Our suite was next to be renovated, but we were given a peek at the redone rooms... I am so excited for our next visit. They have modernized the rooms without losing the Mexican feeling. I was afraid they would become generic and bland, but the new look is lovely. Add the renos to the amazing staff that is already in place and you have a very nice location for a family visit.
We stayed at Pueblo Bonito, but had to find a hotel for one night because Delta changed the departure date forward by one day and Pueblo Bonito had no vacancies. What a nightmare! The property is nice and in a great location. However, the rooms are patched together. Checkout Dana B's pictures - they're the best candid pictures I've seen. The toilet flush broke twice. All night the locals partied and splashed in the pool, doors banging, and so on. No one enforces any rules. Locals come in with coolers and sound systems and use the pool at all hours. Hotel makes no money from them, yet doesn't say anything. I couldn't wait to check out after that first night. To top it all, they told booking.com that I hadn't checked in and are going to charge me. I just sent booking.com my credit card receipt showing that I checked out on the scheduled date and the amount I paid. Avoid this hotel.
A colleague and I decided to spend a weekend in Mazatlan, visiting the city and enjoying the city. Since we were staying just a couple of nights we decided not to splurge on an expensive resort and decided to stay at a basic hotel. Basic. This means clean, with basic facilities in order. Our room was dirty, old almost at the point of being creepy. Not suggested.
We didn't stay here, so know nothing about the rooms, but we did spend a very pleasant afternoon on the beautiful--and largely deserted--beach, right in front of the restaurant, which was happy to serve us cervezas in the sand. We did get up off our chairs long enough to have lunch in the restaurant, where the service was slow...but the coconut shrimp were terrific. Not only is the beach large, but it is also (mostly) free from the frequent vendors of all items large and small. Hard to imagine a more relaxing place to read and relax.
Although the location and price is good, the hotel is old and run down. We rented a two room suite at ground level. The first room had broken plumbing. We moved to another room and the stove did not work nor did the hot water in the shower. They had one bar of soap and one shampoo for four people! We stayed one night because we were tired of traveling and left the next day. The pool & Jacuzzis were cold. The food and service in the restaurant were terrible. The bartender was pre-occupied with his phone and girlfriend. Overall this place lacks management and maintenance. Costa De Pro is just down the street and is far superior for the same cost. Call on the phone for a cheaper rate then the internet.
I run a Tour Company called www.vpvacations.com and if you want a cheap air and hotel or just hotel rates give me a call. Quijote is a very nice hotel but DO NOT USE your credit card at this hotels restaurant as they are using their credit card machine to get your CC info to make duplicate cards to make charges. I Had 12 of my customer get their CC info take in April and now my information on my AMX card last week
This is a small, boutique hotel, nice restaurant, right on the beach. Been going for years. Just a warning: they rent out the hotel for both American and Mexican spring break college students WITHOUT security at night to keep things sane. All night they drank beer, parties, screamed, and played music. The Mexican students came the day before we left, thank goodness, since the next morning all the hallways were covered with sand, the elevator was broken and there were no less than 1,000 beer cans on the grounds. Insane. If you didn't know, Mexicans know how to party until daylight. Not so great if you prefer to sleep at night. So, nice place but avoid at all costs during the 3 weeks of Spring Break.
We have been staying here on vacations for more than 20 years. Great staff, extremely helpful. The beds are very comfortable (they did used to have the concrete slab with a mattress on top, but no more) and the rooms are typical hacienda type, which I find charmingly Mexican. Who wants to stay in Mexico in a standard room that looks like any American hotel? A pool, three hot tubs, and the beach is down the steps ( 5 or 6) to the sand. We could do without the new restaurant, mainly because it doesn't offer Mexican food, except for their Sunday buffet. The old restaurant was miles better! However, it just gives us more reason to visit the many restaurants nearby. Great place!!
My Husabnd and I and another couple went to Mexico for the first time, and it was to Mazatlan. We stayed at the El Quijote Inn. Somewhat fearful, what with a strange language and money, we checked in. The price was right, the rooms are nice a big, full kitchen with basics. I must say that the beds are about as soft as rocks, but you learn to live with that. The staff were lovely and the service was pretty fast for Mexican standards. We enjoyed ourselves enough that we are going back again, this time for almost a month, and taking a good many friends with us. Salud
We exchanged our two-bedroom timeshare for this one. As with many vacations to an unfamiliar place, there were good points, and not so good points. On the plus side, the location is lovely, right on the beach. The suite with master bedroom and another adjoining room were large enough, and there was a Murphy bed in the living area. The staff was competant and spoke English if needed. The restaurant was good, with a happy "hour" from 12-6 PM. On the minus side - this place is OLD. Many things were not up to U.S. standards, such as the furniture. The beds are rock-hard, since there is just a mattress on top of a concrete foundation. The dishwasher did not work, and there was not a single light that you could read by at night. We were glad that the A/C worked well. About the area in general - there are no supermarkets within walking distance, just convenience stores, and nowhere to pick up prepared food to eat in. We ate out every meal, and the restaurants were reasonably priced. It was low season, and some shops were closed. We were the only Americans in the hotel, everyone else being nationals. We felt especially conspicuous every time we walked down the street, as we were pursued by aggressive timeshare sellers.
